If you don't have time to shred whole heads of cabbage and countless carrots, buy some bags of shredded veggies--without the dressing pouches--and simply make your own low-fat dressing.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp sugar (or sugar substitute if you prefer)
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed (optional)
  • 1 16-ounce bag of ready-shredded coleslaw mix


In a small bowl, whisk mayonnaise, cider vinegar, mustard, sugar and celery seed together. Empty coleslaw mix into a large bowl. Pour dressing on top and toss. If you need to thin it a little, add a tablespoon or two of nonfat milk. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
